Leicester v Porto: Stats show Foxes will continue great start in UCL


Leicester City are set to pick up where they left off in the Champions League, with Porto likely to come away from the King Power Stadium empty-handed against a side who have lost none of their last 12 home games in 90 minutes.

The Foxes may have endured a difficult defeat to a scintillating Manchester United at the weekend, but it’s Porto’s domestic form which raises more eyebrows, having taken just a point from their last two away games, at Sporting Lisbon and bottom of the league Tondela.

Nuno’s men have also failed to shine in this competition of late, winning just one of their last five UCL outings, and limping to a 1-1 draw against FC Kobenhavn in the first game of this year’s group stage and have conceded 11 goals on their last three visits to English opposition.

They also find themselves up against a Leicester side who have found the net in 23 of their last 24 games, though the Foxes have conceded in nine of their last twelve outings.

That means the best bet tonight looks to be Leicester to win and both teams to score at 7/2, while Demarai Gray’s stunning strike on Saturday could make Gray to score and Leicester to win an inspired selection at 15/2.

In the match betting, Ranieri’s men look to offer the best value at 6/5 for victory with Porto 12/5 to turn around their dodgy away form and 9/4 for a share of the spoils.
